Marianne Kouchoukos started this petition to Nottingham School Board

We respectfully request that the school board support the school administration and all of the 7th and 8th grade teachers by voting to allow 7th and 8th graders to return to school full-time. 

Middle School is an incredibly important time of transition and preparation for high school. The curriculum requirements, to adequately prepare them for the next level, are too intense for the students to continue to manage at home on their own. Staying home three days a week negatively effects our students’ mental health during an already stressful time in their development. 

We are aware that it may not be possible to maintain the spacing requirements at all times. However, spacing is just one layer in our defense against the spread of Covid-19.  Many schools in our district, county, and state do not maintain spacing requirements, but have demonstrated that the multi-layered approach provides an adequate level of protection and prevention.

We trust the school administrators’ and teachers’ expertise to make the best possible decisions for our students. Please support our professional educators, students and the parents in our community. Thank you.
